Honestly, it might not be the worst thing ever to get Quincey back. 

 

Kronner-Smith

Big E-Dekeyser

Quincey-Ouellet/Marchenko/Bäckman

 

Anything would be better than a Lashoff-Kindl/Quincey pairing. 

 

I hate how appealing that is starting to sound...pure depression.

Through one of the rumor sites, Niskanen was offered 7 years for $49 million by Tampa Bay.  My god....if thats true.

You've obviously lost your mind. Rookies don't need to be paired with someone they're going to learn bad habits from. I'd rather have two kids up than Quincey.

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Doesn't he want 3 years minimum?

 

THEN GIVE HIM THREE YEARS

 

Honestly, all this hand-wringing. If you have a shot at an elite, game-breaking talent, and he wants maybe one more year than you'd really like to give him, and your team is a bubble team without any major upgrades...

NINE MILLION DOLLARS FOR ROBIDAS AT 37 WITH REPEATEDLY BROKEN LEGS? THANK YOU FOR SAYING NO KENNY I THINK.

 

For once, I agree with his analysis.

Problem is, if Kenny HAD signed him, Malik would have had a blog post out tonight explaining why it was such a shrewd move and going on and on about how "with just a little luck" it'll be a genius acquisition. 

 

He's never wrong because he never commits to anything until after it already happens.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

7 years $49 mil is about what I figured he'd get.  Unless the Wings make an offer like that or unless he really wants to play in Detroit, he's not wearing a Winged Wheel this year.

TBH he doesn't even commit to that as he says "I THINK" to end the tweet.  :lol:

At this point it's either way overpay for niskanen or get nothing. Or trade for someone but that seems unlikely.

Who knows, but I don't think we're getting NIskanen. At this point, someone, Tampa or otherwise, is going to give him a huge offer, and it's next to impossible to imagine Holland matching let alone beating. And again, should we be upset about that specifically? I'm not so sure, because again, we're talking one big year on a great team. He hasn't proven that much, and that's a lot of money and years to throw at a guy who might not keep it up. The bigger concern is whether we let lower-priced targets go because we were chasing Niskanen. I don't like the way this day is shaping up right now at all.

I would like Niskanen but I also don't to drastically over pay. Just call me Ken Holland Jr.
